Familial eosinophilic cellulitis is a skin disorder. It is distinguished by painful, elevated, red, swollen, and warm patches of skin that have a flame-like appearance. The exact causes are yet to be discovered. However, this skin condition is frequently linked to arthropod attacks from spiders, bees, mites, fleas, or ticks.
- The standard treatment for familial eosinophilic cellulitis may include steroid medication., including topical and systemic corticosteroids, antihistamines, cyclosporine, dapsone, azathioprine, griseofulvin, doxycycline, minocycline, antimalarials, oral tacrolimus/topical tacrolimus, sulfasalazine, interferon alpha and gamma, TNF alpha inhibitors No recommendations for the therapy of this disease can be made since well-designed, randomized controlled trials are not available.
- Systemic therapy should only be used in situations that are resistant to local therapy or have broad lesions because of the favorable prognosis and propensity to resolve.
